Many people use e-cigs or vapes to quit smoking. Did you know that the type of device you use may make a difference?
About 28% of people who used refillable “tank” models every day to satisfy their nicotine craving gave up smoking. Only 11% of those using disposable e-cigs or use replaceable cartridges, were able to quit smoking, according to a study by addiction scientists at King’s College London.
These findings, published in the journal Nicotine & Tobacco Research, could be significant for smokers just starting out in the e-cig and vape world, trying to decide which type of e-cig to try. Refillable tank devices may deliver nicotine more effectively, and offers more options as far as nicotine content and flavors, a variety that, along with price, may be factors that lead to more success in quitting according to researchers.
“Our research demonstrates the importance of distinguishing between different types of e-cigarettes and frequency of use when examining the association between e-cigarettes and quitting,” Sara Hitchman, a lecturer in the King’s Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience who led the study, said in a statement.
